Excelent addition :D . I probably need to learn about peek/poke. I'm horrible with memory related stuff.

It works fine for me. Nice issue! The tutorial about angles (prt 2) was cool. I checked only the final compiled exe and everything seems really well explained and controlling the space ship is great. The camera movements are good too, and the AI is well done. If you can make a story behind it and make some nice graphics(maybe with polygons) you could really make some great shit!

Looks like QBE is still having issues with Firefox, namely the huge gray boxes. Using the very latest, 2.0.0.9.
